In China they have been on sale for several weeks. But it has been now, in this first half of September, when Oppo has decided to bring the Oppo Reno 6 and the Oppo Reno 6 Pro to Spain. These are two mid-range phones with which the brand wants to strengthen its position in a market segment that, although it is not where most of the sales are produced in Spain – most are below 400 euros–, all brands want to be present.
Usually, mobiles that belong to the same series maintain a common design between them, but that is not what we find with the Reno 6 and Reno 6 Pro. While the former opts for a screen without curves and completely flat sides – like those of the iPhone–, the Pro variant opts just the opposite: curves on both the chassis and the screen.
Personally, after holding both models in my hands for a few minutes, I have to confess that the design of the Oppo Reno 6 seems more attractive to me. Perhaps because it differs from most phones that we find on the market thanks to those completely flat sides. In the hand, yes, both one and the other feel quite solid.
Important differences in the technical section
In the technical section, how could it be otherwise, we find quite a few differences. Oppo Reno 6 opts for a chip MediaTek Dimensity 900 manufactured in 6 nanometers, while the Reno 6 Pro incorporates a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 Which is nothing more than a slightly modified Snapdragon 865, actually. The Qualcomm chip is obviously quite superior in all synthetic benchmarks.

The differences are also noticeable when it comes to photography. The Oppo Reno 6 Pro not only has a main camera with a much more capable sensor –The same that we found in the Oppo Find X3–, it also has a longer-range zoom and a 16-megapixel resolution wide-angle camera. How conspicuous these technical differences are in practice will have to be carefully assessed; But, on paper, everything seems to indicate that the Pro version is not only better, but also more versatile.
Oppo too has placed a lot of emphasis on software options related to the camera, which include various methods based on artificial intelligence – one of them, for example, artificially deforms the lights when we are capturing a portrait. Similarly, it also insists that its phones do include a charger in their box – a 65 W one, too.
